New Years Eve is a time to celebrate the year gone by with neighbors and friends. There is lots of fun and drinking, and sometimes safety is forgotten. Here’s a list of some safety tips to remember while ringing in the new year.
- Go with a group.
Not only will partying as a group be more fun, but it can also be a good way to keep track of everyone and keep yourself safe.
- Pack a portable cell phone charger.
Nothing’s worse than trying to call your friends or a cab and your phone dies! Get a portable phone charger to prevent this from happening.
- Make sure to eat!
This may seem like a no brainer, but eating a hearty meal will help absorb any alcohol that may be consumed and will help you to have energy to dance the night away!
- Drink plenty of water.
Even if you aren’t drinking, it’s a good idea to hydrate. Alternate alcoholic beverages with a glass of water to pace yourself.
- Watch out for champagne bottles!
Those corks can be tricky! When uncorking, make sure to point the bottle away from people or valuables/breakables.
- Don’t drink and drive!!!
There are plenty of ride sharing options available if you decide to drink. Consider also staying at a neighbor’s or getting a room at a hotel close to your festivities.
